The energy and excited carried over from Tuesday’s kick-off during our final day of Ariba LIVE in Las Vegas. It was fueled by a dynamic series of talks during the morning’s general session. Retail veteran David Maley delivered an entertaining talk about Kohl’s journey to align its sourcing and procurement processes. Southern California Edison’s IT leader, Marco Lopez, emphasized the importance of collaborative partnership across enterprise.
The audience was elated when Ariba’s EVP and Chief Product Officer, Sanish Mondkar, took to the stage to unveil the array of new innovations that his team has been busy developing over the past year. Mobile apps were a highlight!
The conversations and networking continued throughout the day as attendees shared insights, experiences and success stories from the breakout sessions. Dr. Tracey Wilen-Daugenti sparked a thought-provoking discussion among the participants at the annual Women in Leadership luncheon, where the commentary focused on the importance of building powerful personal and professional networks.
